Pay it Forward Continues

We continued our class "Pay it Forward" campaign.  For Veteran's Day, the kids learned about the true meaning of a veteran.  They then made cards and brought in magazines, coffee, chapstick, razors and crossword puzzles.  Everything was delivered to the Kansas City VA Medical Center.  They were happy to receive the donations and cards from the students.

The students brought in a lot of Halloween candy for the soldiers.  We were able to fill two large boxes.  They also wrote letters.  We purchased beanie babies for the soldiers to disburse to kids.  In addition, we sent USA magnets for the soldiers.  Everything was sent to Operation Gratitude.

We made Thanksgiving cards and wreaths for the residents at Villa St. Francis nursing facility in Olathe.  The residents were so excited to receive the gifts for Thanksgiving.  There were many smiles and the facility management was extremely appreciative of how generous the kids were.
